The European Media and Information Fund is looking to support projects from independent fact-checking organisations, which play a key role in limiting the negative effects of disinformation on the public discourse and democratic processes. 

In the context of the ongoing Russia – Ukraine conflict this Call for Proposals is currently accepting applications that contemplate collaborations with fact-checking and media organisation and/or journalists operating in Ukraine. 

The following types of actions are supported under this call as a means of strengthening the fact-checking ecosystem:

  • Urgent actions: projects designed to increase coverage, depth, and speed of fact-checking activities by organisations that commit to producing regular flows of fact-checks. These actions may have a duration up to 6 months and receive a grant up to €55,000.
  • Scale-up projects: free-lance collaborations within newsrooms and/or the integration of state-of-the-art technologies for content verification and media and social media monitoring. These actions may have a duration up to 12 months and receive a grant up to €80,000.
